When Chelsea and I were out for ice cream on Saturday, we spied two separate goose families in the park by the Dairy Queen. One family had only one, older gosling. The other we dubbed "Kate and Jon plus 8", and those youngsters were maybe a week junior to the "singleton". Although sharing the same pond, the same grazing grounds, the separation between the two families was very distinct. They were fun to watch, and just so adorable. Even though the babies were curious about us, their parents let them (and us) know there was to be no close contact of any sort. We were happy to finish our cones and just watch.
